A Si/SiOC/graphite composite structure with high efficiency and long-term cycling stability was synthesized using a cost- effective method. In this structure, a SiOC network with good chemical stability acts as a skeleton to support and segregate Si nanostructures. The graphite incorporated in the Si/SiOC composite is used as a conductive material to enhance the electrical conductivity. Such Si/SiOC/graphite composite anodes show excellent cycling stability, with a specific capacity of ~637.3 mAh·g-1 and ~86% capacity retention over 100 cycles at a rate of 0.3C. The design of this new structure has the potential to provide a basis for the development of other functional composite materials.
